Dr. James Holly, Jr. is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and core faculty member within the Engineering Education Research program at the University of Michigan. His research paradigm is shaped by his experiences growing up in a Black church within a Black city and later studying engineering at Tuskegee University, a Black institution, three spaces where Blackness is both normal and esteemed.  His scholarship calls attention to the ways anti-Blackness pervades engineering culture, and he uses reparatory justice as a framework to reconstruct engineering teaching, research, and practice.
